Contest nails

Okay, apparently it is allowed to publish the contest nails before the winner is released... My mistake, I´m sorry you had to wait this long! There were two themes in the competition, Coloursplash and Black on white. I did both of them. 
First the Black on white -manicure:

I used my white Rimmel polish, London clouds, as the base and then I put on some lace stickers. The L O V E -letters are made with black rhinestones, I glued them on one by one. There´s a little rose in the middle of O... :) The Sweet Love -text on my thumb is made with black nail art polish, free-hand.
Then the Coloursplash:

I used five different polishes, the green Claire´s -polish, Sinful Colors Fusion neon, H&M Blue My Mind, Models Own Lemon Merinque and OPI atomic orange. Then I added the tiny sequins one by one, and then glued on the colorful rhinestones (also one by one).
So what do you think? :) I put so much time and effort to both of them, I really hope everyone likes them! ^^ These aren´t the same pictures I sent to the competition, I did little collages for that. ;)

Shocking Pink

I haven´t shown you nails for a while, because I´m entering to a nail art contest and it has to be done anonymous. The competition is only in Finland, I think, but it´s HERE, if someone is interested. :) I´ve done 2 manicures for that, and I´ll show them to you when the winner is released. ;))
Anyway, I bought a gorgeus neon pink! Sorry that the pics are quite crappy again. Now I´ll introduce the polish to you on my pathetic, short right-hand nails. :'D

Sinful Colors - Fusion Neon
Just look at that GLOW!
I also bought a Wet´n´wild -polish which name I can´t remember right now...
Aagh it´s so bright! The best neon pink I´ve tried. The sun wasn´t even shining and it was already quite gloomy, but the polish is still shocking pink. I´m in love! ;DD

ALL my nail things

I´ve been quite busy lately, I have a huge "deep-cleansing" operation going on in my room... ;) It included my nail things also. And OMG how much work I had to do to get them organized... Now I have some before&after photos for you!

I´m very sorry for the lousy quality of the pics, but I had no daylight available...
So messy!!! Seeing all those stickers also reminded me to USE them, not just buy them...

That´s all my nail polishes. Uh, when I´m looking at that pile of polishes, it makes me want to stop buying them more... But I always crack under the pressure! :'D I´m a shopaholic, I confess!
Now for the after-pics:

1. Tiny sequins
2. Rhinestones and cutted fimos
3. Glitter powders
4. Random stuff, for example toothpicks :)
5. Fimos and 3D nail accessories
6. Tiny beads
7. Assorted nail accessories (chains, 3D-stuff...)
8. Nail piercings
9. Stickers
10. Stickers
11. Nail Jewerly parts
12. Rhinestones and pearls

1. Matte top-coats and nail glues
2. Konad plates and other stamping stuff
3. OPI mini polishes and 3 Konad special polishes
And under those there are some nail polishes. Okay, lots of nail polishes.  ^^'
Then all together:

1. My travelling nail-kit, there´s nail files, hand creams and other stuff I need to keep my nails pretty.
2. Nail polishes
3. Two-way nail-art polishes
4. Nail art-polishes
5. Nail polish remover
6. Base- and top coats
That´s it. Maybe that´s not perfect, but I´m so happy to have everything under control, clean and organized! Oh yeah, I´m a shopaholic AND a controlfreak too. Great. :'D
Now this is where I keep all that stuff:

Click the pictures if you want to see details, but I´m so sorry for the quality!!! >_<
I was thinking to do a post about all my nail polishes, I mean just the polishes, picture of all of them sorted by the label (like in "families") and maybe a swatch of each one. :) That´s going to take some time and effort, but  
would you be interested?

Winter Wonderland

...Okay I´m sorry, that "winter wonderland" -thing is kind of a cliché, but I couldn´t help it. I want to share some snow pics with you, once again! Altough it´s getting a little too snowy here in Finland (and it keeps snowing more), snow IS a beautiful thing.

So pretty!
I´m sorry, this was a little random post, but I had to share those pics with you... ^^

Stylish Blogger Award !

I got this one from Diava, thank you very much! ^^

No I´m supposed to tell you 7 things about me, right? I just realized that though I haven´t  received this award before, I´ve done Beautiful Blogger -award, (I posted about it looong time ago, some of you might remember, it´s over here...) where I also had to tell 7 things about myself. Here are the 7 things I listed then...

1. I always leave my nail things laying around when I´m done with polishing... I´m a messy person. :'D
2. My right hands nails are shorter than lefts! Can you keep a secret??
3. I need two chairs when I´m eating breakfast, because I want to lift my legs on that other one. My sister thinks this is very annoying... I´m sorry! :D
4. Everyone knows when I´m hungry, because I have hiccups when I´m hungry or when I´ve just finished my meal... ^^'
5. I actually think Justin Bieber has some good songs! Just couple! :'D
6. I´m very lazy. That´s it.
7. I had to ask my sister to help me with this... Embarrassing.

...and that list is still correct, nothing has changed, so I´m not going to do another list because it´s very hard to think new things to list. ^^´
Well, I´d like to mention that I´m working on that 1. thing, trying to keep everything in order... I´ll have to buy a new chest of drawers or something! Oops, I almost forgot... Here are  stylish bloggers I´m giving this award forward (If you´ve done it already, it´s okay!):


...okay there are a lot more stylish bloggers but I´ll tag just five of them, sorry. :)
I have no nail pictures this time, I´m sorry, I just like my nails I did in UAE so much... :'D But I´ll post nail pics as soon as I do something new. :) Hey, I also want to share something with you:

I hope it works... I love this song, but just look at her NAILS in that video! Wow! *_*

New Nail Designs and Shoppings from UAE !

Okay, LOTS of PICS coming up!
First some pictures from UAE (United Arab Emirates), because there was so beautiful, warm and sunny! Although many of them are taken from Dubai, my family lives in Al Ain. :)

Hahaa, leaving the cold, icy Finland! >:D
Dubai Beach - oh how I miss that sunshine!
Dubai by night - picture taken from Burj Khalifa, which is the world´s highest building! 8)
Some of Dubai´s skyscrapers... They were so high! :'D
The world´s biggest indoor aquarium or something, in Dubai Mall. It was huge!!!
We also visited in Al Ain Zoo. Aren´t they cute? <3
Al Ain by night, pic taken from the top of Jebel Hafeet.
A camel!!! I love it! ^^
Palm Jumeirah
We were at Ferrari World... Of course we had to try it! And it was COOL!
And leaving UAE... Shaky pic from airplane... :'D
I want to go back! :'D
Everything was so huge in Dubai, I felt very tiny everytime we were there... Good thing my family lives in Al Ain, it´s more green than Dubai or Abu Dhabi, and it´s not sort of a tourist place as Dubai! I think Al Ain is just more comfortable than them, u know? :) There´s more great pics in my sisters´ blogs, HERE and HERE. Check them out! ;)
Now I have lots of nail designs to show you! :D Take a look:

My toe nails on the beach! Those are the stickers I bought from Tsukicon.
And French gradient manicure with rhinestone, I really liked this one, simple and pretty!
These I made for my little sister who lives in UAE, Karzu.
and things I used to them...
I love that polish, so I just had to polish my own nails with it... :'D But isn´t it gorgeus??
Toe nails also... Please ignore my crappy toes! :'D
I took a henna tattoo!
It turned out very dark brown in couple of days, I think it looks cool! :D
This desidn is made by Karzu! Its very cute, isn´t it? :)
I bought my first Konad plates! This is one of my first attempts, index finger failed but the rest are okay, right? :)) Polish is OPI Merry Midnight.
Another try with Konads, this time on Karzu´s nails.

Isn´t that cute colour? I love it! *_* It´s the Claire´s pink polish.
This design is currently on my nails, I like it very much! I haven´t done anything that complicated for a while. :)

Things I used...
+Konad plate m32.
So what do you yhink about them? :) That last design is my personal favorite... And I´m surprised about how easy those Konads are to use, I´d never tried them out before. I still have to practise, of course. ^^'
Now the nail polishes I bought:

OPI - Merry Midnight
OPI - Dazzle me
OPI - Sparkle-icious ( I´m still bitter that didn´t manage to get Mad As a Hatter -polish from Alice in Wonderland collection, and this is my "consolation prize"...:'D)
Claire´s matte top coat
Claire´s nail polishes from L to R: 176, 105, 166, 112.
I just love the blue and pink ones!

Inglot top coat
OPI Irre-swiss-ables mini polishes! From L to R: Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous, Yodel Me on My Shell, Color So Hot it Berns and RapiDry Top Coat.
Those mini polishes are so cute!
Some nail accessories... ^^ '
I also bought OPI - Show It And Glow it and Chip Skip, but I forgot to take a pic of them. I´ll present them to you later! :) Then I bought four Konad plates, m14, m72, m32 and m3 + three Konad special polishes, black, white and red. Then I bought lots of accessories, but I have no pics of them neither. ^^' I´m sorry, but you´ll see them, I promise! :)
And of course I bought lots of other stuff, clothes and everything, but this is a nail blog. :P
So now I´m back Finland and I´ll blog normally again! I can´t wait to try out the rest of my shoppings... ;) I hope you all had great New Years Eve and your year has started great! ^^
